A celebration of flight and beer, OBX Brewtag is modeled after the whimsical and entertaining Red Bull Flugtag, translated to “flying day” in German. With OBX Brewtag, the general premise is the same, although rather than human-powered flying machines, Brewtag contestants will be competing to see who can launch and fly an empty 1/6 keg barrel the furthest.
11 AM - 5 PM @ 6800 S. Croatan Highway, Soundside Event Site, Nags Head
OBX Brewtag was inspired by the fantastically entertaining Red Bull Flutag (translated from German to “flying day”). The premise of OBX Brewtag is the same, except rather than human-powered flying machines, contestants compete to see whose handmade aircraft can fly an empty keg the farthest. But participants don't just fly, they perform! It takes more than a far-flying contraption to earn the crowd's favor. It takes charisma and, most importantly, outrageous costumes. Accordingly, for spectators, the competition amounts to a hilarious air show. Combine that with a craft beer festival showcasing over 30 local and regional breweries and you've got perhaps the most novel event ever presented on the Outer Banks.
